I agree with you that these wallstreet bastards do not deserve to be paid, also consider that it was ACORN, and other community organization groups like ACORN, that were putting lots of pressure on organizations to loan money to people that had less than stellar credit histories, as well as, the government under President Clinton that wanted to push legislation that allowed this along with the FED and Alan Greenspan that further exacerbated this whole situation by lowering the FED funds rate to such a low level.

Sorry, I'm not changing my vote.

P.S. I'm tired of people blaming other people for their screw-ups.
